At the movies ...

Making the final cut

Tina Fey is an uptight admissions officer at Princeton University, Paul Rudd is the do-gooder founder of an alternative New England high school, and Nat Wolff is the slightly odd but brilliant student who has the plot potential of bringing them together in the PG-13-rated comedy-drama, "Admission," co-starring Lily Tomlin, Michael Sheen and Gloria Reuben.

It opens Friday at Beacon Cinema in Pittsfield, Berkshire Mall Cinema 10 in Lanesborough, North Adams Movieplex 8 and Triplex Cinema in Great Barrington.

On their fiddles

Fiddlers Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy will present their "Masters of the Fiddle" show alongside pianists Mac Morin and Leahy's sister, Erin, at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center on Castle Street in Great Barrington at 7 p.m. Sunday.

They play traditional Cape Breton fiddle music, a genre unto itself that originates from the island's Scottish immigrant history.

Tickets range from $35 to $67. Call the box office at (413) 528-0100 or visit www.mahaiwe.org.

MacMasters and Leahy are interviewed in The Eagle's Arts Theater section on Friday.
